– Recording news for blood cancer patients at ASH

ASH, the biggest hematology conference in the world, started a few hours ago in Atlanta (Georgia, US).  A team of the Patient Empowerment Foundation (PEF), including his founder and Board Chair Andrew Schorr (@AndrewSchorr), are at the conference gathering the latest news for blood cancer patients. Andrew and team will be interviewing top hematologist/oncologists from around the world to get updates on various types of blood cancer, including lymphoma, multiple myeloma, leukemia and other blood cancer diseases.  Andrew Schorr and his wife Esther will be offering daily wrap-ups from ASH with the highlights of the day.  You can watch them live registering at Patient Power’s site, our partners in this conference.
